Make These Lovely Paper Roses Instead Of Buying Flowers For Valentine's Day

They're super easy and they'll never wilt.

3. Do some more folds!

Undo the last diagonal fold you did, and observe the line down the center of the paper. You need to fold one corner across the center to roughly where the white dotted line is.

4.

Now, turn the paper over and fold the other side so it matches up. Don't worry about making these folds exact. You should notice that you have folds on either side facing different directions.

Take a break if you need to and get a glass of water. You're doing a great job and everyone is proud of you.

11. Curl all the petals of your flower shapes.

You can use a bone folder to curl the edges, or just wrap them around a pen. You can even use your scissors if you're careful (it's just like curling ribbon for Christmas presents).

12. Get some new paper and cut out a little circle.

This is going to be the base of your rose. I know I said you'd only need four sheets of paper, but I lied. Crafting requires adaptability.

15. Do some stuff with glue.

Drizzle some glue around the small opening of the flower, and then nestle it on top of your larger flower piece. You might need to press the base down to make sure it adheres. Don't complain about getting glue on your fingers. Crafting is messy, just like love.
